The world-class HCN-6800 horizontal machining center combines advanced technology with high performance and high productivity for achieving maximum performance when working with virtually any type of material. The machine features spacious work envelope and pallet size, twin pallets for improved productivity, as well as a fast rapid traverse speed and rigid, reliable 50 taper spindles.
The machine provides fast, efficient and versatile machining of a wide variety of materials from steels to nonferrous metals.
Part size capability:
Max. workpiece length/width: 41.34 in
Max. workpiece height: 51.18 in
Pallet dimension: 24.80 in square
Additional Welding – 29 total welders
Allis Roller employs twenty-nine total additional welders working in conjunction with two robotic welders. Welding provides the assembly and final fabrication work needed for a variety of roller and non-roller applications, including fan blades.
Allis Roller provides all the necessary secondary operations like drilling, straightening, manual turning, and balancing in house.
SBR Rubber Roller Processing Line
Our SBR Rubber Roller Processing line provides two downdraft tables for primer and adhesive applications. Allis Roller utilizes Remco SBR strip builders and two autoclaves along with a 32” diameter X 20 foot long grinding and sanding lathe.
Allis Roller provides assembly services for various rollers and their components. The technology we employ assembles and fits with our CNC controlled bearing press to coincide with other hydraulic horizontal presses for assemblies that match print requirements.
Allis Roller utilizes a climate controlled quality lab for precision checking and recording of work done on the shop floor. Additionally, we provide an outside service with a portable six foot faro arm allowing 12 foot measurements to be taken anywhere. Calibrated measuring equipment is located throughout the Shop for checking and recording purposes. All equipment is calibrated annually.
The Allis Roller Tool Room assists our processes by providing fixtures for many of the production operations. With surface grinders and manual bridgeport mills, Allis-Rollers journeyman toolmakers sharpen the cutting tools and help with secondary operations. Though automated machining is vital to our system, the manual equipment kept in our Tool Room allows us to also take on unique or small-run jobs.
In addition to our machining staff, the Allis Roller team includes four engineers with a combined 150 years’ experience in manufacturing. Their experience and engineering skills provide our customers with additional cost savings and oversight on projects, which helps to ensure quality and longevity of the parts we produce. Allis Roller utilizes Solidworks 3D design software, Gibbs Cam Programing software, & Draftsight 2D software to facilitate the engineering process.
